Everyone else at AFi seems to have weighed in on the DCUC Subscription, so why not me?
I was among the first to tell Mattel they were doing a lousy job with character selection in JLU. That is why I started with the JLU Most Wanted Polls here at AFi. With DCUC I never had that feeling. DCUC gave us character selection from across the DC universe. Wave 1 gave us Batman, Penguin, Red Tornado, Orion, Etrigan, Metamorpho. With that assortment, we got
2 Batman characters
1 Silver Age JLA
2 Satellite JLA
2 Morrison JLA
2 JL International
1 JL Europe
1 New God
and whatever groups Etrigan falls into.
Wave 2 gave us more JLA, more Batman characters, Superman, Aquaman characters and a Flash villain. Wave 3 gave us more JLA, Green Lantern characters, more Batman characters, Titans characters. Wave 4 gave us more JLA, Wonder Woman characters, JL International, Titans, and Batman Beyond. Wave 5 gave us more JLA, Superman characters, Batman characters. Wave 6 gave us Superman, Shazam characters, more JLA, more New Gods, more JLI. That is 6 waves of great stuff. (more…)
